How Long?

Hey guys..does anyone know how long it takes for your jaw to open all the way back up to full range? i've just been diagnosed w/ tmjd and i still cant open my mouth all the way back up ..its been 2 weeks now. the only thing i like about this is that when my jaw is locked it doesnt click or get stuck...does that sound wierd? any advice? id really appreciate any replies even if simple... i hate being left alone with all these questions.. thanx guys

Re: How Long?

It can take awhile to see any progress. Everyone is different but it's been my experience that the treatment goes rather slow for TMJ. 2 weeks really isn't very long, give it some time, it could take several months. Good luck with your treatment.

Re: How Long?

Thanx so much for the reply. Would you recommend I just go in to get an x-ray of the joint to be safe? I mean i get scared hearing some ppl talk about joint replacement surgeries!!
